Introducing 272 MA in Harlem, no fee rental apartments

More apartments to rent are coming up in Harlem! The next batch is on the corner of 112th Street and Manhattan Avenue! The building is calling itself 272 MA. And it’s represented by Nest Seekers International.

According to the signage, the building will be offering one and two bedroom apartments with no fee. Hmm? But you have to make a certain amount of income to go into the building, according to the website. And the income is on the high side if you ask me!

Interested applicants have to fill out this form. Here’s the website to learn more.

Harlem brownstone on 113th Street converting to luxury rental apartments

Looking for an apartment in a Harlem brownstone? It appears several will become available on West 113th Street between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Manhattan Avenue. Taking my daughter for a stroll over the weekend, I noticed a big construction sign that read “New Destination 320 West 113th Street” in front of a Harlem brownstone. And of course, the sign also included the word “luxury” so you can bet whatever apartments are carved out will be expensive. See photos below for website and phone number to inquire further.

A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

“Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”

The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”

God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”

Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”

God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”
